Oncologists call for networking

October 16, 2019 - Anna E. Schmaus-Klughammer

Networks of practicing physicians, GPs, internists and highly specialised oncological centres are to help overcome the challenges of oncological care. The web-based software Case.io supports networking.

The increase in new cancer diseases and the ever longer lifespan of people with tumours pose challenges for the discipline. The establishment of comprehensive network structures is becoming increasingly important, said Professor Carsten Bokemeyer, Chairman of the German Society for Haematology and Oncology (DGHO) on Saturday in Berlin.

Bokemeyer said that not all people lived in large cities where highly specialised centres were available for care. The coupling of the practices of general practitioners to a network can ensure that patients in structurally weak regions also have access to innovative therapy methods.
